Welcome to the Glen Cove City School District’s Interscholastic Athletic webpage. Participation in interscholastic athletics is available to all students in grades 7-12.
The Glen Cove School District realizes the importance of a quality interscholastic program in the community as well as its role in the health and physical education of students. Athletics should be a broadening experience in which harmony of mind-body functions is created through striving for physical and mental excellence. This value-building experience should be offered to as many students as possible. A well-coordinated program is vitally important to the morale of the school and our community.
Everyone involved in the delivery of athletics possesses a unique opportunity to teach positive life skills and values. Therefore, this educational experience demands highly qualified coaches. Desire, dedication and self-discipline need to be developed in order to ensure the commitment and personal sacrifices required by athletes. Making such a commitment helps to nurture integrity, pride, loyalty and overall character. The final outcome is a better citizenry carrying these values throughout their lives.
It is the nature of athletic competition to strive for victory. However, the number of victories is only one criterion when determining a season’s success. Guiding the team to attain maximum potential is the ultimate goal. To this end, the coaching staff must teach student/athletes to prepare their minds and bodies in order to reach maximum potential, and then to be modest in victory and steadfast in defeat.
